WBEC-West 16th Annual Strategic Procurement Opportunity Conference will provide you the resources needed to build sustainable relationships with procurement and supplier diversity professionals in order to grow your business to the next level of success. This year’s event will have smaller industry specific symposiums, which will allow you the opportunity to dialog and connect with procurement and supplier diversity professionals in a more meaningful way, while learning about the latest trends and industry specific opportunities within your target markets.
 
Learn How to Uncover the Clues to Success in this two-and-a-half-day event while building sustainable relationships during the symposiums, connection luncheon, matchmaker opportunities, strategic mini-connections and round table meetings with corporate partners, primes, government agencies and fellow WBEs. Join your new connections and top off the event in style at our annual awards dinner on Thursday, September 12, 2019.
